Field trips

These trips are your chance to view and enjoy the natural resources we work to protect, manage, and restore. Pre-registration for field trips is required and will include a nominal fee. Field trip sign up will occur when you register for the conference, and conference registration will open in late 2023. Space in each field trip is limited and sign up is first-come-first-served, so register early to make sure you get into your desired field trip. Note that field trip fees are non-refundable.

**Please note that the field trips will go in almost any weather (with the exception of hazardous conditions). We’ve encountered a wide range of conditions on our February field trips, so please consider this as you decide between indoor and outdoor options, and be prepared to dress warmly if you do register for a field trip.
